A weekend at home...

The kids are in bed and all is quiet. I usually try to go to bed once the kids go to sleep because there is no telling who may wake up during the night, but then there are some nights where it is just nice to stay up and enjoy a little bit of peace and quiet in my own home... that doesn't happen when the kids are awake.
We stayed around the house most of the weekend. Staying home is nice in that we don't have to worry about packing up - bottles, food, books, diapers - or arranging things around naps, but it also means it's just us entertaining the kids ALL day and that can get long, especially when there are things that we'd like to get done around the house. Of course we always have visits from Toppe & Grandpa and Mimi & Popo, so that helps break things up and they do play pretty good on their own.. for a little while. Avery & Austin usually wind up fighting about something though. They haven't quite got the "sharing" concept down yet and even though we try to have 2 of everything, one wants what the other has.... go figure.
I believe we are officially in the "why?" stage. Let's hope it's a short one. Actually Avery is the one asking "why?" Austin has started saying "huh?" It's funny now, but by the end of the week it will be driving me crazy.

I have to admit...I feel the same way (about bed). Luckily mine are old enough now that they can entertain themselves or each other. Syd is past taking naps, but she has to have quiet time in her room while Stacey naps. Soon those days will be over. They grow up so fast! :)
